Latin America: Macri government’s ban on Telesur sparks angry reaction

Wednesday 30th March 2016

POLITICIANS and journalists lined up on Monday to condemn the ban on left-wing TV network Telesur imposed by Argentinian President Mauricio Macri’s government.

Communications Minister Hermann Lombardi claimed that “there was no pluralism at Telesur” as justification for taking the channel, which has harshly criticised Mr Macri, off the air.

Uruguayan journalist Victor Hugo Morales, who described his recent dismissal from Argentinian radio as a similar act of censorship, said: “Macri doesn’t allow the transmission of Telesur in Argentina because he is afraid of the truth.”

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said: “They can’t make Telesur disappear. If they prohibit the channel in Argentina, millions of of Argentines will watch it on the internet, on social media.

“Telesur will continue bringing the truth, defending the true freedom of expression of the people, in the face of this attack from the right, emboldened by its time in the spotlight,” he said.
